Jim C ya’ later!

PEDAL_ICE_NASHVILLE

This day was bound to come eventually. As of mid-May I will be leaving Sunday Bikes. This was obviously a difficult decision for me since I co-founded Sunday with Odyssey back in 2005 and I’ve been working on it every day for the last 9 years. It’s truly been an amazing experience learning the bike industry, traveling with the team and most important of all, meeting so many BMXers from around the world.

My main goal with Sunday was to do interesting things with every aspect of the company and if you’ve been paying attention since we’ve started then you know that we’ve done that many times over. Sunday has always been in great hands with everyone at Odyssey/Full Factory standing behind it, and that’s where it is going to continue to grow, with lots of exciting projects already in development for 2015.

So, now I’m off to new creative adventures. I just want to say that I’m truly honored by all the people that supported and rode a Sunday during my time with the company. Even after all these years, I’m completely stoked when I see a person riding one. BMX as a whole has never seemed brighter when you consider how amazing riders are today and when you look at the progress of the younger riders it’s clear that things are going to only get crazier. I’m very excited to cheer it all on from the sidelines.

Thank you,
Jim Cielencki

Texas Toast Photo Recap

Texas Toast 2013 is now a memory…a very good one, but still just a memory. So, we are doing a recap of all the photos of the team at Toast.  There’s photos of Gary Young, Jake Seeley, Erik Elstran, Jim Cielencki and Chris Childs.  The dudes all killed it.  All the above photos are from all the media outlets that covered the event including Ride BMX, Dig BMX, Vital BMX, BMX UnionRed Bull and Dan’s Comp.  See you next year!

Sunday at Texas Toast!

Toast

We had a great weekend at Texas Toast in Austin.  Gary Young took second in street and was the first person to finish the Gauntlet of Death.  Jim Cielencki took Best Trick with a handplant in the Veteran Best Trick contest. Not to be left out, Chris Childs took the title for having the most fun on a bike by winning the Dirt contest.  Hope you were able to see it all first hand, but if not then start planning on being there next year.

Jim in Ride’s Friday Interview

Jim Cielencki is featured again in Ride BMX’s Friday Interview with the topic being “Have you ever had to choose being a PRO or getting a real job?”  Read that right HERE. Check out the Rail Progression Interview from a few weeks back HERE.

Gary’s Pretzel Rail

Not sure if you realize, but Gary Young is an animal.  Here’s a throwback to the Baltic Triangle Tour to show you that has actually never seen the light of day.  We had just finished riding the indoor skatepark when we came across this pretzel rail.  A spot like this does not appear everyday, so you have to jump on it while you can.  As luck would have it, the weather broke long enough for him to get it done. There’s really so much that could go wrong on this set up. Photo Jim Cielencki.

Look for this clip in an upcoming Gary Young edit, but in the meantime watch Gary in the Baltic Triangle Tour after the break.

Way Out West
Cory Foust

Cory Foust has been a BMX snowbird for the last 2 years.  This year he returned to Austin, TX to escape the cold of Pennsylvania.  This isn’t the only destination his wings took him to this winter.  Before he flew home, he drove west to California filming all along the way.  Look for this trip featured in BMX Plus.  Filmed and edited by Cameron Muilenburg with addition clips by Jim Cielencki.

Wallride Wednesday!

Gary Young kicks into high gear to wallride almost to the ceiling for Wallride Wednesday.  This amazing photo was shot in Helsinki during our Baltic Triangle trip in 2011.  Watch the video after the break.  Photo Jim Cielencki
